Comment Singularity Sky, perhaps? (Score 1) 78

"as an unprecedented technological revolution sweeps over the world..."

I'm wagering ($0) it's something like this book.

Charles Stross writes a good book, for sure, but it's a little slow... too slow for how this amazing tech could/should be used, by the general populace) to make it more exciting.

You are some asshole. Do you really think that the people in the region, and all the people flooding in to help, as well as those trapped under the rubble or being treated outdoors because the hospital is unsafe, are going to kill their devices battery by surfing kiddie porn or streaming movies? How many chargers do you think the shelters have?

"Increased hue, along with decreased brightness and saturation, predicted depression,"

hue = saturation

How can I increase hue while simultaneously decreasing it? Even the dictionary gets hue wrong...

hue |(h)yo| - noun - a color or shade

A color, yes, but not a shade... shade is when black is added to a hue; tint is when white is added to it.

Boy am I glad to read that. I'm not a photographer, but I've never been impressed with any Canon hardware, be it a camera, or a scanner, or a printer. Either the pictures are always out of focus, the stabilizer sucks, the software is shit, you name it. I don't see the appeal of Canon. Garbage hardware, garbage software, expensive.

Comment (sorta) down to socioeconomics (Score 1) 192

Put your money where you feel it's best-served... giving your money to companies that support (possibly) repressive and/or un-environmental policies need not be given more strength.

If you're an older person that feels companies routinely practice this policy, then don't buy their product.

There's more than one reason I don't shop at Wal-Mart... Whole Foods just made my shit-list.

The worst part is, and I understand this all-too-well, how does one get internet without supporting Comcast, AT&T, etc.?
